Abstract

The main aim of the CERACS project was to evaluate the use of cable systems in a road transport informatics (RTI) system. The performances of various types of radiating cables and existing systems were determined and compared to those of conventional radio or microwave links. Technological recommendations for choices of such leaky feeder systems were established. Three new road applications were proposed: (i) GSM retransmission in tunnels; (ii) an automatic tolling system; (iii) an RDS beacon. Finally, the project considered the possible usefulness of leaky feeders at higher frequencies, especially in the field of satellite retransmission.
